That is correct Sunita.  Now that we've explored the mismatches, I thought it appropriate to start quantifying the level of the spurs caused by these mismatches.

Re : Interleaving Spurs: Let’s Look at the Math
There are several challenges to look out for while interleaving ADCs.  Spurs appear in the output band that outcomes from the inadequacies related with inter leaving ADCs.  The deficiencies are essentially misalliances between the 2 ADCs that are interleaved.  There are 4 elementary misalliances that outcome in spurs in the production of band.  These are gain mismatch, offset mismatch bandwidth mismatch and timing mismatch.

Increase the decimation ratio in the DDC to see the effects of frequency folding and translating when a higher decimation rate is employed along with frequency tuning with the NCO.
Let’s now take a look at a real example with the AD9680-500. We’ll see how this simple yet powerful tool can be used to aid in understanding the aliasing effects of an ADC as well as help with understanding effects of some digital processing blocks in the AD9680.
Back in my April blog post this year, we took some time to look at the Frequency Folding Tool that is available on the Analog Devices web site. I would like to revisit this tool as there have been a few handy improvements that have been made based on some great feedback.
The ADIsimRF tool has many different calculation possibilities which are very nice to have on the hand. These can be useful when either in the lab collecting data or when working on a report in your office. The tool outputs are great to double check experimental results or to set expectations when about to take data.
Before looking into the signal chain portion of the tool we began by looking at the calculator tool available in ADIsimRF.
